I have been to America about 26 times, and believe it or not I have never previously tried the Milani cosmetics brand, which I think mainly is because it was never stocked in any of the shops I went to. However, I had heard so many good things and so I was delighted when Milani asked if I would like to try out a few of their products as they are now available to buy in the UK.
The first product I received was the Milani Prime Correct Face Primer (£13.00), which is available in two different shades, Light to Medium and Medium to Dark skin tones. I unfortunately got sent the Medium to Dark shade, but I will be able to get more use out of this once I have some colour on my skin in the Summer months and plus it doesn't leave much colour on the skin so I can get away with it now too. The Correct Face Primer has a peachy/apricot tint to it, which is great for correcting discoloration and darkness on the skin. It is an oil-free product and so it can be used on all skin types, and is more of a liquid than a balm primer, and so it is super easy to blend into the skin, without leaving any stickiness. I found that this primer also worked really well at keeping my makeup in place throughout the day, and it feels non-existent on the skin, making it really comfortable to wear.
All of Milani's products are very well-priced, especially considering the quality of product and ingredients you are getting. The Milani Baked Blush (£10.00) is available in a wide assortment of shades, and here I have Corallina, and with coral being one of the colours of the year, it is a lovely Spring hue, which will also be perfect for Summer. The compact comes with a large pan of the blush, which then lifts up to reveal a mirror and a little blush brush, making it a great travelling companion. I found the blush to be very pigmented, and the mineral colour inside is just stunning, giving off plenty of shimmer and it feels super silky and soft on the skin. As the colour is quite bright for my fair skin, I was a little worried it wouldn't suit me, but you can go as light or as heavy as you want with this blush, and I loved the gentle flush of coral it gave my cheeks.
The Milani Colour Statement Moisture Matte Lipsticks (£6.00) come in stunning gold packaging, making them look a lot more high-end than their price tag. This is a matte lipstick that doesn't dry out the lips, and instead, with Grape Seed Extract, it keeps the lips moisturised and nourished. You only need one swipe to get full colour, and the formula feels suede-like on the lips, and I find it really comfortable to wear. I couldn't find a huge shade range available here in the UK, but there are certainly great shades to choose from. Here I have the shade Naked, which is a medium nude, making it the perfect go-to colour for both day time or evening as they last on the lips really well throughout the day. These are also vegan friendly - go Milani!
You can find Milani online in the UK at BeautyBay here.
